One of the country’s most experienced actors, Peter Feeney, has been cast in the role of the malevolent Nixon in the short film Every Little Thing, which shoots in November.
“I’m very fortunate to have an actor of Peter’s calibre in this film,” says writer-director John Harris. “He has a dry comedic touch, but he can also be decidedly menacing – which is what I want for his character in Every Little Thing.
“Nixon is a persuasive and scary character, but we get only a glimpse of him in the film. All the menace has to be conveyed by voice alone – and Peter is just the man to handle that.”
Peter has acted in TV, film and theatre since 1994. His film credits include Kiwi features Toy Love and the zombie hit Black Sheep. He’s appeared in numerous TV series including Agent Anna, The Amazing Extraordinary Friends and Auckland Daze, and Australia’s All Saints and Stingers.
Recently Peter played Rose Noelle skipper John Glennie in the tele-feature Abandoned, and he has a leading role in the upcoming NZ children’s TV drama Cul de Sac. Among his American credits are roles in Ash vs Evil Dead, Hercules, Xena, Cleopatra 2025, Legend of the Seeker, and 30 Days of Night.
Peter also works on occasion as a director, casting director, writer and teacher of acting.
